ALL LIFE IS CHANGE
NATURE'S LAW AGAINST WHICH
SO MANY REBEL.
Women Especially Refuse to Be Rec
onclled to the Inevitable—Rose
May Well Teach a Lesson
Beauty is something to be striven
for In every relation of life. Beautiful
homes, beautiful cities, beautiful peo-
ple are to be desired, but human be-
ings are living creatures and men and
women should remember that the law
of all living things is change. The
rose, blooming in loveliness, drops,
without protest, its petals when its
radiant hour is past, when its mission
of beauty is accomplished.
But that does not mean that the
rose tree dies. It only obeys nature's
law without rebellion. Women are
like roses; they bloom in beauty in
their youth and then, when their lit-
tle day of physical charm is past they
refuse to be reconciled to a temporary
autumn of life and shrink from the
passing winter of death.
An Indian poet has said: "The
flower blooms for the fruit; when the
fruit comes the flower withers." liven
so women exchange their physical
beauty for the work of their lives, and
who shall say that the lifework of a
woman is not more fair than the phys-
ical price she paid to achieve it?
Spring only promises; autumn's hands
are filled with fruits.
Women are only given youth
beauty, strength—mental and physical
—that their lives may bear fruit, and
who would stand in maturity a woman
In experience and a girl in appear-
ance? There is nothing more par
thetic than the man or woman of ma-
ture years whose life has been so de-
void of experience that the entertain-
ments of youth still appeal to them as
the highest ideals of pleasure.
You do not want a man grown to
look like a boy! Riding within a
street car the other day the writer had
time to observe a young father stand-
ing upon the platform whose little
child has recently passed through a
critical illness. His youthful face, un-
conscious of the scrutiny, was begin-
ning to wear a man's expression—a
father's expression. No one would
have called him a boy. With man's
responsibilities his features were at-
taining manhood's dignity.
And, somehow, upon another occa-
sion, the secret of an especially ideal
woman's life seemed to be revealed,
when that woman's daughter re-
marked: "Mother never had any sym-
pathy with women who tried to make
themselves look younger than they
are by artificial means. Mother be-
lieves the true spirit of life is to ac-
cept life's changes as they come."—
Activities of Women.
Connecticut will open a college for
Women in the fall.
The average wages of 125,000 work-
ing women in Chicago are less than $6
Mrs. C. H. Comstock is sales mana-
ger of the woman's department of a
large real estate firm in Cleveland, O.
If the proposed constitutional
amendment becomes a law in Cali-
fornia, every bachelor girl in the state
between the ages of twenty-one and
thirty will be taxed every year.
Since the war began Russia has
given the Order of St. George to 80
women, all of whom served in the
ranks either as fighters or were under
flre as Red Cross nurses.
Several women prominent in official
circles in Washington have organized
a patriotic organization to be known
as the Paul Jones association, the ob-
ject of which is to preserve as a na-
tional heirloom the old colonial man
sion near Halifax, N. C, where the
great naval hero spent several /eare
of his life.
Strange Death Message.
It may have been a strange and
tragic coincidence. Some will believe
there was more in it than that. The
husband of a Paris woman violinist,
himself a musician, left for the front
shortly after mobilization. His name
was Remy. At parting he told his
wife: "If I go un<Ter I will try to let
you know directly before the official
news reaches you." She scarcely
played any music during his absence.
But the other flay she took up her vio-
lin, feeling impelled to play one piec«
which he liked above all. She opened
the case, and two strings of the violin
suddenly snapped, the D £tnd the E.
"Re" and "Mi," she at once thought.
It was the warning he had said he
would give her. The next day a tele-
gram informed her that her husband,
Sergeant Remy, had been killed in
Two Kinds of Water.
It was a training school for navy re-
cruits and the young ensign had been
detailed to teach the "rookies" the ru-
diments of learning.
"Name the various bodies of water,"
wrote he on the blackboard, "and state
how many there are."
"It was a simple question to big John
"Two kinds of water," wrote he,
"carm and rouf."
Fine for Love-Making.
"The planet Jupiter has five moons."
"How romantic the nights must be
there!"—Kansas City Journal.
Some observe Mother's Day once a
year, others all the time.
HOMES OF THE STRAWBERRY
Eight Districts of the Country In
Which the Succulent Fruit Is
an Important Crop.
A survey of the production and mar-
keting of strawberries in the United
States made by the department of ag-
riculture indicates that the eight most
important commercial strawberry dis-
tricts are central California, Tennes-
see, Maryland. Delaware, southern
Louisiana, North and South Carolina,
Virginia and the Ozarks.
Great quantities of strawberries, the
report says, are also grown in the
North in small patches and shipped
to market by trolley, express or in the
producer's own wagon.
The first strawberries of the year
come from central Florida, the move-
ment beginning in December and con-
tinuing until the end of March. By
the first of March the first strawber-
ries from southern Texas and south-
ern California find their way to the
market. About the middle of March
the Louisiana crop begins to move,
continuing about two months or until
the middle of May.
By that time the season of carload
shipments is at its height. The greater
part of the Tennessee and Virginia
crop is shipped in May, as well as
much of the Delaware, Illinois apd
Maryland output—Good Housekeep-
In the Kitchen.
The Vanilla Bean—I have a great
association with epicures as a flavor-
ing for desserts.
Nutmeg—Ah, but I have a grater.
Hearing a noise at the kitchen en-
trance, the man of the house slipped
quietly to the rear door and suddenly
opened it. The grocer's delivery boy
was there with a basket containing a
dozen eggs, a pound of butter and
some Roquefort cheese.
"Oh, it's you, is it, Billy?" said the
man. "My wife is always afraid when
she hears a noise here, especially af-
ter it begins to grow dark. She thinks
it's a robber."
"Well, she needn't change her mind
on my account," gloomily responded
the grocer's boy, handling over the
goods and presenting the bill, which
called for $1.87.—Pittsburgh Chronical
A Last Resort.
Mr. Tompkins was obliged to stop
over night at a small country hotel,
says Harper's Magazine. He was
shown to his room by the one boy the
place afforded, a colored lad.
"I am glad there's a rope here in
case of flre," commenting Mr. Thomp-
kins as he surveyed the room, "but
what's the idea of putting a bible in
the room in such a prominent place?"
"Dat am intended foh use, sah," re-
plied the boy, "in case de flre am too
far advanced for yo' to make you' es-
The Truth Comes Out.
The Lawyer—But how did you man-
age to rob that big corporation so sys-
tematically without being discovered?
The Former Employee—Oh, the big
corporation was too busy working the
same kind of a game on the public to
